NAMM 2012




EGEN18TVF The EGEN returns unchanged.. 5 piece E-Gen Prestige neck, mahogany body with flame maple top,  unique "Kung Fu" grip on the upper horn [a little too small for my hands though] Jumbo frets on a rosewood board with the last 4 scalloped, Edge Zero Custom bridge with special springs only on the E-Gen requiring a different backplate, very nice oval abalone inlays [which I requested they use more of to a few ears at the show], Gold hardware, and Dimarzio HLM [Herman Li Model] pickup set, neck bridge and mid, with one of the most versitile wiring schemes available shown here, all finished in TVF [Transparent Violet Flat]. The info tag was missing at the show, which is usually where I get the info from since this was a TBA, with everything else to do I missed getting it. Ill have it posted soon. List price, finally set at $3733.32, includes J Craft case.

It was in a bad spot for light again so I'm using pictures from 2010.

Andy Timmons


AT100 - Andy was invited to play with the other major Ibanez endorsers at the Hoshino 100th Anniversary party in Japan.

Andy absolutely loves his AT100 and it has been his main stage guitar for years, and was ready to commit to Ibanez again.
